Arroz Griego (Greek Rice)

Tip:  Read directions completely before preparing.

1/2 cup bacon
2 cups rice
1 cup beef broth
1 cup onion soup
1 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup green bell pepper, julienned
1 cup cabbage, chopped
1 garlic glove, finely minced
1/2 stick butter
1 1/2 cups water

In a deep heavy bottomed skillet, fry the bacon, then drain the rendered fat, remove bacon and set aside.

To the same skillet, over medium high heat, add butter, garlic, bell pepper and onion and sauté for 4 minutes, until onion is lightly browned. 

Add water, beef broth, onion soup, rice, bacon, and cabbage.

Bring to boil, cover, lower heat to low and cook for 25 minutes.

After the first 10 minutes, uncover, turn rice, recover and finish cooking the other 15 minutes.  Enjoy!

Am I using just dry onion soup mix in this? or is it prepared soup?

Great question! Use 1 cup of prepared soup, such as Campbells Onion soup. Enjoy!
